Tailored, Clean, & Green: Raleigh Denim Fall 2012 #nyfw


Raleigh Denim Workshop‘s FW’12 presentation was a parade of classic American looks, illuminated (ironically) by the darkest textile on the presentation floor: gorgeous selvedge denim. The North Carolina-based brand (which produces their denim locally via non-automated jeansmiths and vintage sewing machinery) showed for the first time in New York this season. They presented both men’s and women’s styles, all with a consistent theme of woodland-prep, tailored button-down shirts, and a tame, classic color story.

The clothes were all beautiful, but the focus was the eco-friendly denim, created using locally sourced materials from the Mills of Greensboro, NC (which was once a thriving center for denim production). Designers and husband/wife team Victor and Sarah Lytvinenko bring the workshop concept to life through production, one-by-one inspection, limited edition runs, stamped leather patches with unique edition numbers, and signatures on every pair of denim they lovingly release into the world.

To see local garment production make a come back, however small, gives the eco-conscious consumer a bit of hope. This blip on the NYFW radar was rooted in an urgent ethical & environmental movement. Raleigh Denim, while remaining painfully stylish and appealing to all matter of urban folk, is at the forefront of a beautiful era of change, and we can’t wait to share more of their message.
